John Crist is one of today’s fast-rising stand-up comedians, with more than 1 billion video views, over 5 million fans on social media, and sold-out shows from coast to coast. He made Pollstar’s Top 100 Global Tours list in 2019 with more than 197,000 tickets sold. Widely known for hundreds of viral videos like “Honest Football Coach,” “Every Parent at Disney,” and “Brands that Need to be Cancelled,” John Crist has performed all over the world and, in 2021, began his multi-city national theater tour, Fresh Cuts, selling out theaters all over the United States.

In 2022, John released his second special, What are We Doing, on YouTube and released his bestselling Book, Delete That, in the fall. John also has a weekly podcast called Net Positive. When asked where he finds the inspiration to write jokes, Crist says, “I grew up in the deep south. My dad is a pastor, and I was the third of eight homeschooled children. My first job was at Chick-fil-A. Coming from a background like that, how do you not write jokes?”
